CRL1 Loyang station is an underground station located along the Loyang Avenue, where there are many utilities under the road. Multiple traffic diversions would be required to realign the utilities, so as to facilitate the construction of the station.
In addition, the Earth Retaining and Stabilising Structure (ERSS) and deep excavation works for the CRL1 Loyang station will be carried out under challenging ground conditions, as the rock is typically weaker at the transition point between the mainly soft Old Alluvium (predominantly soil-like material) and hard Bukit Timah Granite. This requires the use of specially-designed machinery to carry out the excavation works safely. LTA and the contractor will monitor the works closely to ensure that these works are carried out safely and minimise any inconveniences.
As part of the Changi Northern Corridor transport infrastructure improvements, this contract will also include the construction of a stretch of the Loyang Viaduct located directly above the CRL1 Loyang station. The full vehicular viaduct will be situated along Loyang Avenue between Tampines Expressway and Loyang Way. Vertical noise barriers will be installed on the viaduct to mitigate the impact of traffic noise on residences nearby. Upon completion, residents and motorists in Changi can look forward to increased convenience, shorter travelling times, and improved intra-town and inter-town connectivity.
